    Good Dog Book

    Everyone loves a Good Dog Book, right? Many people have probably read Jon Katz, as he has written a least a dozen books about his dogs.

    "IZZY & LENORE" is the book that I just finished. The...

    We measure water most days, but I can tell by the sound her collar charm makes when it his the pyrex water bowl as Lucy drinks how long she is at the bowl. Ding..Ding.. Ding.. It's kinda handy...

    Update on Lucy

    Latest ACTH pre 7.3

    This was done on Lysodren 625mg / week
    She is eating/drinking too much so I wasn't surprised by those numbers.

    We are...
  6. Re: Daisy Mae has been diagnosed with PDH.

    Lucy's coat came back different. It is thicker and her brindle is gone, but replaced with lots of gray. I put a hair oil on her that I bought for myself and didn't like ( Ojon). It smells like...
  7. Re: My girl pug (confirmed Cushings & confirmed calcinosis cutis) / Introduction

    Darn the luck. I feel your disappointment. I like it when bad things can just be cut out of the body and be done with, rather than all this medicine tweaking up and down.
    Hope you feel better....
  8. Re: My girl pug (confirmed Cushings & confirmed calcinosis cutis) / Introduction

    I think lower is better … but that's just based on my one dog experience. Lucy is 17lbs and she was taking 40mg. It just didn't do it. I was thinking about going up to 50mg when we decided to...

    Re: Boston Terrier in Phoenix

    Thanks Debbie,
    I do think her cortex regenerated in a blink of an eye and I missed it. She was starting to bark at her food bowl for about a week before I caught on … I thought she was just...

    Re: Boston Terrier in Phoenix

    Thanks Lori, I wondered about that because people talk about a 'mini load", not just a dose increase. If the loading dose is supposed to erode the adrenal cortex, then I'm assuming if the...

    Re: Boston Terrier in Phoenix

    I see what you are seeing….. on my signature line below. Her induction was for 15 days taking 125mg am and 125 pm for 15 days, and then after that cutting down to 125mg 3 times a week. Maybe I...
  14. Re: Severe Calcinosis Cutis - desperate! Have you had any luck?

    I think in regards to dry vs wet…its kind of like acne. Some people say dry it out and some people say keep it soft. Trial and error I guess.

    Re: Boston Terrier in Phoenix

    Hi Crystal
    Thanks for checking in on Lucy. Hope you are doing well with your new Bug!
    I'm going with the idea that the seizure happened because her cortisol levels were up but haven't seen...
  17. Re: Need your advice for Tank (8 y/o Boston Terrier) looking for a vet in Roanoke, VA

    Hi,
    I always like to say hello to all the Bostons's….which seem to be unfortunately magnets for this disease.
    Did you get your new ACTH?
    I'm so used to a dog that eats everything in...

    Good ol Cosmo. May there always be room for you on the couch and food in your bowl. May your bed be sprinkled with moon dust and sweet dreams.

    My dog was on Vetoryl but without good...

    Re: My baby girl Elliott

    I think that sounds sweet…arranging her bed with her toys on it. If it brings you peace when you look at it and not pain, then that's good. You can let them go when you're ready. Its odd to think...
